Now here’s a cocktail that’s sure to amp up the spooky factor on your Halloween celebration. What looks like a floating eyeball is actually a lychee fruit stuffed with a blueberry—completely edible! Lychee fruit can be found fresh with a rough dinosaur-looking skin, or canned in the Asian section of the supermarket. It’s a refreshing drink, with the slight licorice edge of pastis, and will be the talk of your next monster bash!
